My garden is finally planted and if we get some good sunny weather, the seeds might not all float away! I buy my organic seeds from Hawthorne Farm (click here for a great article about buying organic and local). This year my garden has 2 kinds of cucumbers, zucchini, 3 varieties of tomatoes, peppers, beets, carrots, 2 kinds of beans, onions, and snap peas.
I am hoping for a better harvest this year...with less feeding of the local rabbit families and more feeding of my family! I built a bit of a fence to discourage the rabbits from using my garden as a restaurant, so I'll let you know how it goes. So far, so good.
We have eaten up almost all the jam I made last year, so I am in production again. My first jams of the 2012 summer season are strawberry rhubarb and are very yummy if I do say so myself!
I am really enjoying this great book that my cousin bought for me in a second hand bookstore. I read it at night and dream about all the recipes I am going to try this year...well, when I'm not dreaming about quilting patterns that is! And of course I am just dying to try a recipe I found on line for dandelion jelly!
What are you preserving this year? Any good recipes to share?
